The theme for June is “Photo-Ready”, with products designed to help you and your kiddos ready for adventure and photo ops this summer.
We don’t really need diaper cream as much these days with a toddler, but this sample really surprised me! I am a huge fan of lavender, and this smells AMAZING. I rubbed some into a dry patch on my wrist, and it really absorbed quickly and wasn’t greasy at all.
Ingredients: Avocado Oil, Cod-liver oil, Shea butter, Cocoa-butter, Beeswax, Castor Oil, Coconut oil, Wheat-germ oil, Lanolin, Almond Oil, Grape Seed Oil, Zinc Oxide, Mixed-Tocopherol and Lavender
As per usual for Ecocentric Mom, the ingredients are thoughtful and I appreciate that they are supporting a smaller brand from Etsy, too.
Orglamix Opal Glow Enlighten Luminizer, 2.5 g (full size) – Listed Retail Value $18
(This product was not available online.)
Orglamix is a cruelty-free brand that’s been on my radar for awhile thanks to the fact that they have their own subscription box, but I’ve never gotten to try their stuff – always nice when a product like that arrives in a box!
This is a sheer highlighter with an opal-like sheen. The formula goes on smoothly and a little can go a long way. I used to be really skeptical of pearly highlighters like this because I originally thought they just made me look greasy… However, this reminded me a bit of the Becca Backlight Primer from the June 2016 Sephora Play, and I used every drop of that stuff! This really does help add a bit of a soft glow to my makeup on days when my skin is feeling particularly dull.
I recently tried a Banana Chocolate Made Good bar, and it was not for me. This was the total opposite, and my toddler absolutely crushed it! He loves granola bars and dried fruit, which this was full of. It had a nice soft texture too, that was easy for him to chew. Plus, it’s gluten-free and peanut-safe for schools. Might need to pick more of these up for easy on-the-go snacking!
I opened the box expecting an eco-friendly Tide Pen, and was met with the cute little brick of soap! Seriously though – I love products with minimal packaging so is a win for me. (Meliora is also a Certified B Corporation, which is something I’ve been looking out for more recently.)
This vegetable based soap is also fragrance-free and dye-free. To use, you simply wet your stain and then rub the Soap Stick on, then wash as normal. I haven’t had anything particularly tough to test this out on yet but I like the idea.
Happy Camper Tee from The Green Tee Co – Retail Value $22 (Currently on sale for $20)
This is a cute summer find for sure! My son loves purple and his favorite shoes right now are a pair of purple Crocs that he picked out himself, so he’s pretty happy about this shirt, too. He’s growing out of most 2T but 3T is a bit too big; this shirt is a size 2T but fits him perfectly. The organic cotton is a bit thicker, but not too stiff, and this little sewn tag on the hem is a nice touch.
Finally, our box included some coupons:
I’d never heard of Nylon Bee before, but they carry a nice selection of hip athletic gear. I may end up using this one!
This coupon for Healthy Snack Solutions is also nice – they carry the Made Good granola bars that we received in the box this month. (Their price on those granola bars was nearly half of Amazon’s price to begin with, so with the extra discount it’s a pretty good deal!)
This Upspring Probiotic + Colustrum sample isn’t something I’ll use since my kid is older. I’ve actually not really considered giving probiotics to babies before, and I’m not entirely sure how I feel about it, but if my baby was having digestive issues this would probably be on my list to try.
Verdict: The June Ecocentric Mom Mom & Baby Box has an overall value of about $43. This is the lowest value I’ve had from them in awhile, but happily, it’s still nearly twice the subscription price. Although I’m questioning why there is a butt butter in a box themed around being “Photo Ready”, if I reframe this as a “Summer Survival Kit” then I feel like it all lines up. 😉 Either way, I really enjoyed everything this month! While I love the main Ecocentric Mom box a little more (it may actually be my current favorite subscription!), I do love that the Mom & Baby Box always has a few quality items for the kids, plus a little treat for mom, too.
